The highly-acclaimed Stratford Festival gives a refreshing update to Iolanthe, the 1882 comic opera that was considered a scathing contemporary satire caricaturing the leading political figures of its day.

The story involves a band of fairies that become enmeshed with the House of Lords in an effort to unite the half-fairy, half-mortal son of Iolanthe with his true love. The production, which was a runaway hit when originally performed, features world-renowned contralto Maureen Forrester as the Queen of the Fairies. Enchanting sets unfold with the magic of children's pop-up books and imaginative choreography lends to the witty, high-stepping good fun.
